Task 6: Conditions To Values In TextInput Element

 

The purpose of this task is to learn how to apply Conditions to values in Textinput Elements.  This is frequently used to determine whether a singular or plural form of a word shall be used.

Now, create a new Article (Termination) and insert the following text into the first Paragraph”:

“In the event that either Party wishes to terminate this Agreement, that Party will be required to provide”, followed by four Elements:

A Textinput Element;
A Text Element with the word, “day”; and
Text Element with the word, “days”;
Text Element with the words “written notice to the other Party.”

Add the System Name termination-number-of-days to the Textinput:

Click the Text Element with word “day” and add a Condition for this Element stating that the word will be inserted into the document only if the Textinput (termination-number-of-days equals 1):

The Conditions Phrase should be revised as follows:

Dropdown No. 01: Choose “Textinput”
Dropdown No. 02: Choose “Loan Agreement”
Dropdown No. 03: Choose “termination number of days”
Dropdown No. 04: Choose “equals” symbol
Text Field: 1

Next, click the Text Element with word “days”, and add the opposite Condition, stating that this word shall be inserted to the document only if Textinput termination-number-of-days doesn’t equal

1 (symbol !=):

The Conditions Phrase should be revised as follows:

Dropdown No. 01: Choose “Textinput”
Dropdown No. 02: Choose “Loan Agreement”
Dropdown No. 03: Choose “termination number of days”
Dropdown No. 04: Choose “does not equal” symbol
Text Field: 1


To complete this task, return to the Textinput Element, termination-number-of-days, click on it, open the Properties tab on the top menu, and set the  entry method to “Numbers only”, thus permitting users to insert only numbers into this Textinput Element:
